The unit's height adjustment range will afford protection for the musician while sitting and, since, when extended, it has a height of 66 inches, it can also provide hearing protection to the standing musician. In addition to offering hearing protection for musicians playing in front of loud instrumentalists, shields can be easily positioned around percussion sections to reduce the hearing impact on other musicians. Beyond the benefits of acoustic shielding, this device also functions as deflector for french horn players, when placed behind the bell.
The shield contracts and folds down to a height of 37 inches, allowing it to be comfortably tucked away behind your chair when not needed. Also, the shield is equipped with a collapsible tripod base that makes it very portable and easily transported.
The Acoustic Shield also has a 1.5 inch ledge, so it easily doubles as a fully-functioning music stand for directors or those desiring a larger music desk, yet not wanting to sacrifice visibility.
